Kean University Department of Athletics Holds Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony

January 2024

On October 15, 2023, the Kean University Department of Athletics hosted their biennial event to induct four standout Kean alumni - two athletes and two distinguished teams - into the Benisch Athletics Hall of Fame.

New this year, Kean Athletics added the Pat and D’Ann Ippolito Legacy Award. The award is named after Patrick “Pat” Ippolito ’62 ’65 M.A., a Hall of Fame inductee, former soccer player, NCAA faculty athletics representative and Kean’s longest-serving faculty member – and his late wife D’Ann Ippolito.

The annual award, presented to five recipients this year, recognizes individuals outside of the athletics department who made substantial and enduring contributions to the department and University.

The sold out event proved to be the perfect end to a great homecoming weekend.
